to get to it on boeing. phil, over to you. >> we've heard from the ntsb, expecting an update from them. they have at least an initial report regarding the fire investigation of that 77 dreamliner in boston yesterday. the ntsb saying that they have decided they are going to send two more investigators to look at the dreamliner in question and that at least initially taking a look at the fire in question they found severe fire damage to the battery of the auxiliary power unit. remember, the auxiliary power unit is what is used to provide power to an airplane when it is parked on the tarmac, not while it's in flight so the battery unit, severe fire kagge there, and it's pretty clear, scott and maria, that we are going to see more airlines, if they haven't already, they are going to start checking their wiring on the battery unit. i just spoke with the folks out of ana in japan. they have a number of dreamliners, checked theirs overnight at the urging of the ministry of transportation in j.i just talked with united airlines. it has checked the battery power wiring on all of its dreamliners
with the latest on this. phil? >> and, bill, got two pieces of news, the first one being that the ntsb completed an update with reporters regarding the ntsb investigation. here's a couple of notes, first of all, they say the battery short circuited and caught on fire but an important point. they are still trying to determine exactly why these batteries caught on fire. the bottom line, this was so serious they had to ground these planes. >> this is an unprecedented event. we are very concerned. as i mentioned in the very beginning, we do not expect to see fire events on board aircrafts. this is a very serious air safety concern the faa has taken. very serious action. >> and regarding those lithium ion batteries, today we spoke with a former worker and whistleblower. this is a supplier to boeing with the 787 dreamliners. they make the charger for the lithium ion batteries. he said he warned his superiors that the batteries were not safe and said the company ignored his warning. just a few minutes ago he described what happened when he saw one of these lithium ion batteries exemployed proceed. >>
investigation. jtsb within counterpart to ntsb out of japan, now says the battery involved in an incident over there was not overcharged. that's a reversal for them. meanwhile, ntsb is testing the lithium ion battery cells in washington, d.c. investigators are running multiple test at multiple locations. some at boeing in seattle, some at washington. they not continuing to peel back the onion looking for more, in terms of what is the cause between the dreamliner incidence. also in washington, there is discussion that u.s. senate is considering hearings to address the history of the 787 dreamliner. the t is in the discussion phase. the house of representatives, says it has no plans to hold hearings regarding the 787 and lij yom ion batteries. you mentioned shares of boeing moving higher. we want to show you eaton, interday. investigators in the uk are looking at fuel involves manufactured by eaton in the 787. there is discussion about what is causing fuel leaks with the graem liner. er with monitoring secretary lahood's speech in washington. he says anything regarding the dreamliner, we will br
there are things we don't know about yet. for example, after the event in boston last week immediately the ntsb had a fairly serious investigation involving the japanese. they had some inkling there was a problem with the battery system. what happened in japan later sealed the deal as far as a much more serious approach to this. melissa: as a passenger this makes me very concerned about a 787. do you think they will get the confidence back for flyers if they straighten out all the problems? how would you go about doing that. >> i think the key is team work. when you have problems in an aircraft like this or an existing model, the certifying organization faa, ntsb and others including the japanese who will work together on a solution. if that solution is one actually effective, if they're very transparent with what they're doing and how they're doing it i think public confidence will return. melissa: that sound like a long process. how long do you think these planes will be on the ground? >> hard to say. until they understand exactly what happened and until they understand what role if any the batte

: but this latest incident is by no means minor. and now the board, the coast guard and the ntsb are all trying to get to the bottom of it. and we are back here live where you can see the oil tanker remains anchored here in the bay tonight. it's unclear how long it will be here, but most certainly during the initial stages of this investigation. now, the u.s. coast guard also confirms tonight that drug and alcohol tests were performed on the pilot. the results of the alcohol tests have come back. and we are told they came back negative. reporting live on treasure island, i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. >> jodi, thank you. the question is fairly simple. how did this happen again? big changes were made after the tanker hit the bay bridge five years ago. most of those changes deal with where the ships can and cannot go during times of low visibility on the bay, but the bay bridge has no such restrictions. nbc bay area's arturo santiago soins joins us. what now? what changes can be made? >> reporter: the san francisco harbor safety committee, u.s. coast guard and a number of other agencies a
